I love to make fruit salad during Summer time because of the abundance of stone fruits and mangoes.
But the stone fruits don’t keep that well. They go soft very quickly so either kena makan cepat2 or kena simpan dalam fridge.
And bila dah disimpan dalam fridge instead of in the fruit bowl, alamatnya memang selalu ter overlooked untuk dimakan and they will end up being thrown into the compost bin or into the worm farm jugak akhirnya sebab dah ‘belenyek’ (mari belajar bahasa Jawa ye, hikhikhikhik).
But then nowadays when I am on a mission to control Miss 8’s food intake and try to make her eat healthily especially during school time, kenalah I vary her fruits hari2.
Selalunya I just bagi dia 1 fruit depending on what’s available in the fruit bowl. And sebab Mum dia malas nak potong2, hehehe.
But I want her to start eating more fruits at school so dia akan kenyang makan fruits and she won’t need a big lunch or some other snacks in her lunch box kan.
And since she loves fruit salads, I pun buatkan lah fruit salads for her tiap2 pagi.
And Miss 13 pun dapat lah tempias sama, she gets fruit salad in her lunch box too which she really likes as well sebab dia kata senang nak makan.
And you know what, Winter fruit salad is I think much nicer than the Summer fruit salad, hehehe.
This was her recess and lunch pack on Tuesday. I made her poloni sandwich on 4-seeds bread with cheese and grated carrots.
Selalunya yang tinggal cuma bread crust aje sebab dia tak suka the crust.
The fruit salad pulak consisted of persimmon, kiwi fruit, banana, apple and pear.
And ini pulak her lunch pack today. I made her chicken sandwich on multigrain bread with cheese and grated carrots. And dried apricots if she’s still hungry after the sandwich, hehehe.
The fruit salad pulak consisted of strawberry, banana, kiwi, persimmon and apple.
Masa Winter ni aje lah we can eat persimmons.
And the strawberries have started coming in as well which is good.
But sekolah tinggal 2 minggu aje lagi pun so hopefully I can keep up my enthusiasm to make her fruit salad every morning for the next 2 weeks, hikhikhik….
